Star Platforms provide a Niftylift articulating boom lift to Hemel Hempstead Town Cricket Club

UK powered access rental company, Star Platforms, provided a 21m Niftylift Height Rider Hybrid (HR21H) articulated boom lift to Hemel Hempstead Town Cricket Club (HHTCC) so they could update their sponsor signage for the new season.

Located just outside the town centre, HHTCC are a family orientated cricket and social club running many cricket teams within the local community. As the new season kicked off, the time came for them to update their sponsor signage, and they contacted Star Platforms to arrange the hire of a powered access platform to complete the work.

Andy Turbutt, Sponsorship Manager, HHTCC, commented: “Whenever it comes to updating our sponsors’ branding or external maintenance, Star have always been helpful in selecting and hiring the right machine for us. With the patio area directly outside the pavilion, a cherry picker makes updating the signage much easier and safer than alternative methods. The machine is also narrow enough to be able to navigate the grounds and trees, so we can reach all areas of the building to carry out the required updates and maintenance”.

With a working height of 21m and a working outreach of 12.8m, the 21m Niftylift HR21H articulating boom lift enables users to reach up and over obstacles on the ground to access hard to reach areas and complete the task at hand. This product has 225kg lifting capacity articulating boom with ToughCage for added stability; meaning the operator could take up their materials and tools to update the signage quickly and efficiently. The bi-energy power enabled them to do this with minimal disruption to other workers on site.

Richard Miller, Managing Director, Star Platforms said: “We are always happy to support local businesses and are pleased to be able to help one of our local cricket clubs with a machine to update their signage. As a sponsor ourselves, it’s great to see how well the club is doing and the updated signage is a welcome addition to the pavilion”.
